Ascott is a Singaporean company that operates residential rentals and serviced residences under brands such as their namesake Ascott, Citadines and Somerset.
They have loyalty program called ascott star rewards with four status levels. Now, they have decided to offer Gold status (second highest) for members who sign up (theoretically only Amex Platinum card holders are eligible).
You can sign up for ascott star rewards at Gold-level here.
Note that the Gold-status is valid for two years from the date you apply for it.
Here’s copy of the email that Amex sent out:

I signed up using the link above and got the Gold status with some bonus points.
These Ascott properties can come handy especially in Asia-Pacific where they have most of their units. Ascott brands are aimed at leisure and business travelers that stay bit longer and prefer more residential setting and possibly multiple bedrooms.
I believe that I have only stayed at their property once in Jakarta several years ago that was huge (booked it on Orbitz or some other OTA).
